SNL recap: Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer rages, Kristen Stewart makes Totino’s Pizza Rolls hot

First-time host Kristen Stewart has spent most of the past five years attempting to shed the public perception of a miserable movie star fueled by her almost weekly appearances on virtually every tabloid cover. After breaking free from the profitable, but terrible Twilight saga, Stewart has starred in a series of smaller, critically acclaimed films (Clouds […]

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Recap: Christoph Waltz in Inglorious Pancakes

Christoph Waltz got his first taste of IHOP on this week’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Regardless of his opinion on the pancakes, could the actor be a funny enough “comedian” to make this episode worth watching? With his “Viennese sensibility,” Waltz dressed like he was ready for most of the events of the episode. But […]

‘No Sex Allowed’ and Other Bizarre State Laws

Most of the time law is far from funny, and while most legislations involve some serious stuff there are a few legal gems in the United States that are simply hilarious. While many were enforced because of past events and circumstances, it is without a doubt that most of these laws have no place in […]

Paul Tagliabue apologizes for calling concussions a “pack-journalism issue” in 1994

Former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue has apologized comments he made about concussions decades ago. Back in 1994, Tagliabue (who served as commissioner from 1989 to 2006) called concussions “one of those pack-journalism issues” and claimed the number of concussions “is relatively small; the problem is the journalist issue.” In an interview that aired Wednesday, he […]

The Oscars should do a better job recognizing young actors (but only the good ones)

The Academy Awards ceremony takes forever. It always runs long. Awards bleed together, recipients are played off before their speeches are finished, and there are always about three pretentious montages too many. Having said all of that, here’s my proposal: The Oscars should add another award. They should add another award because as things stand, there’s […]

What’s coming & going on Netflix in February 2017

We’re hitting one of the most boring sports times of the year, with football officially over after the Super Bowl, MLB still two months from starting up, the NBA and NHL playoffs still two months away, golf and tennis majors multiple months away, March Madness (obviously) still a month away, etc. Well, good news for those of […]

Homeland season 6, episode 3 recap: The Covenant

Another episode of Homeland down, and another batch of depressing storylines furthered… The episode opens with Quinn dreaming about taking a shower, which leads into him reimagining his poisoning. He wakes up and tries to put the moves on Carrie, who rebuffs him and once again treats him like a child. Carrie’s dalliance with Saad […]

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee recap: Lewis Black in a black Cadillac

Put Lewis Black in a black Cadillac and he’s bound to scream at other drivers. There was plenty of that — and more — in this week’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Black even goes as far as describing his act as “mildly psychotic.” At least he’s self-aware, because Black definitely lived up to that self-diagnosis […]

Taking a deeper dive into Split, its surprise ending and what it means

The surprise at the end of Split excited some filmgoers while making others shrug. Is it really a big deal? While writing my review for M. Night Shyamalan’s latest film Split, I may have oversold the “big reveal” that occurs at the end of the film. (Technically, that surprise may not even be part of […]
